Goode-bye: ‘Bama RB transferring


On Saturday, Demetrius Goode announced — via Facebook, of course — that he will be transferring from Alabama to North Alabama.

Two days later, that move became official.

By way of the Birmingham News, North Alabama head coach Terry Bowden has confirmed via a statement that the running back will be joining his football program for the fall.

“We’re excited that Demetrius has chosen to finish his college football career here at UNA,” Bowden said in the release. “He comes with the highest recommendations from every coach I had the opportunity to talk to at Alabama in regards to his character, football playing ability and work ethic.”

As UNA is a Div. II school, Goode will be eligible to play immediately.

Goode, who has already received his degree from UA, has one season of eligibility remaining.

“I would like to thank my Alabama family for the greatest journey of my life,” Goode wrote on his Facebook wall. “I have learned many things and matured in many ways but everyday brings about change. Sometimes you have to move on to do better in life. I will be moving to North Alabama for football. RTR forever in my heart, the champion Tide, the fans that I will always love and never forget. I thank ya’ll for the support: ROLL TIDE ROLL. For life.”

The past three years with the Tide — he was a redshirt in 2007 — Goode totaled 59 carries for 272 yards and a touchdown. Goode was a four-star player coming out of Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia in ’07.

    Wishing Goode all the best for his last year of eligibility. So glad he was able to complete his degree at UA and be part of the championship team. Not easy to stand behind Ingram and Richardson. Hope this step brings him the opportunities he seeks.

    Looks like Terry’s going to be getting some love from his former rival (Nick, can you spare a dime (back)?).

    Satan kicks out another to make room so he can over sign again.

    What an ethical guy Satan is.

    @gladenole …

    Guess you missed the part about how Goode has already graduated from Bama. Now he’s going where he’ll see more playing time than he would with the Tide–and he has nothing but good things to say about Alabama.

    But you’re too busy being an ass to actually read the story. Yeah, you’re a great example of ethics in action. It’s always ethical to pass judgment without any comprehension of the facts.
